Whippets Take Down Madison 83-61
There was too much size and experience wearing Shelby uniforms at Madison Junior High for their season opener against an undersized Rams squad who got blown out 83-61 on their home surface.
A monster opening frame had the Whippets comfortably ahead 22-6, an advantage that grew to 43-21 by the break. Shelby then coasted to a 31-point edge into the final stanza before taking their foot off the break as 10 Whippets found their way into the scoring book.
Sophomore transfer T.J. Pugh led all scorers with 16 points while his Shelby teammate Jonny Devito netted 13 off the bench and seniors Uriah Schwemley and Hunter Hoffman both added a dozen each.
Tyler Tackett paced the Madison scoring attack with 15 with Jashawn adding 13, all of which came in the second half of play.
